BLUE NOTE RECORDS Nineteen years ago jazz junkie Bob Perry set out to build a music store bearing the name of his beloved Blue Note Records. With the revered label’s consent, Perry created not a jazz specialty shop but a pop-culture compound with a selection as diverse as the Miami melting pot it serves. Nestled within two connecting buildings and an annex is everything from calypso to reggae to hardcore. Perry sings the praises of Verve/Remixed, the No. 1 record on Blue Note’s 10 current best-sellers, which, like his store, is a mix of music born out of jazz obsession: ”I love these artists, but the remixes are the bomb!” — KR
